A high school friend of mine got married this Saturday. My parents celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary and bought a new car on Sunday. I also received my college diploma in the mail this weekend.
These events in life help me realize the importance of setting goals, often times having to redefine them. We move day-to-day living in a routine, taking the same paths to and from work, eating at the same restaurants and talking to the same people. Our lives can sometimes become dull. Taking time off to assess our future and where we stand is as important as getting that oil change, that pedicure.
A nice tune-up to life can make all the difference. Life is what we make of it.
With time I learn that love isn’t “security.” My friend’s wedding reminds me that it is an act of faith and trust and my parent’s anniversary tells me that it’s a decision that must be taken every day. With time I learn to accept downfalls, with my eyes and mind set forward. I learn that either you control your attitude or it controls you. With time I learn that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become. I learn to build on today because tomorrow’s terrain is uncertain. I learn and grow to overcome everything.
It’s Monday. It’s a new day, a new week and the start of something new.
